THE SOUTH GALLERY. 



The South Gallery contains most of the large paintings in the exhibi- 
tion . In the centre of the south wall— the chief ' 'place of honor' ' in the Acad- 
emy—hangs the glowing Sunset (415), by George Inness, the splendid 
effect of which can be seen even from the North Gallery, through the Cor- 
ridor In the centre of the East wall are Harry Chase's New York Harbor, 
North River (379), and B. C. Porter's "Portrait of a Lady' - (389), and in 
the centre of the West wall hangs Eastman Johnson's Portrait of Senator 
Evarts (452). Large works by James D. Smillie, M. F. H. DeHaas, 
James Hart, Charles Sprague Pearce, J. G. Brown, Henry A. Loop and 
George H. Smillie also occupy positions of prominence. 

Near the entrance from the East Gallery is a poetic expression of " Even- 
ing" (365), by Chas Warren Eaton, and on the line, is E. L. Henry's Four 
o'clock Tea (367). Hamilton Hamilton's " Farewell " (368), is a picture 
charming in color and sentiment, showing two young women standing on a 
shore, waving their handkerchiefs toward a boat fast receding out of sight 
in the distance. The moon is rising out ol the sea, and the sun is setting be- 
hind the spectator, casting a rosy glow over the figures, and tinging the 
sky. A Portrait (369), by George H. Story also hangs in this panel. 

On the East wall, in addition to the large paintings already referred to, 
by Mr. Chase and Mr. Porter, are " Seventy-five and Over" (375),— an old 
woman— by W. J. Baer ; bright landscapes by J. W. Casilear (380), Bruce 
Crane (373) and R. W. Hubbard (388); Mr. Wyant's Evening (382), C. F. 
Ulnch's Waifs (381), Thomas Hovenden's " Taking his Ease" (383),— 
an old negro leaning back in his chair enjoying his pipe;— an attract- 
ive " Head" by William H. Lippincott (387) and— hung high— '-Night- 
fall" (377), by Ernest C. Rost. 

On the corner panel are Exchanging Confidences (389), by Frank C. 
Jones; and J. H. Witt's picture, showing two pretty children "Writing 
to Santa Claus" (396). J. Alden Weir's strong " Portrait of Francis La- 
throp " (390), and C. Harry Eaton's Autumn Days (399), hang above. 

On the South wall, near the end, are J. R. Brevoort's Windy Evening 
on the Moors (397) ; Whittredge's " Sunrise over the Sea " (401) ; R. W.

Van Boskerck's " In Blossom Time " (400), and going toward the centre 
of the wall, Love's Temptation (403), by Tojetti ; The Difficult Text 
(402), by T. W. Wood ; Sundown, Winter (406), by Jervis McEntee, and 
"A Jolly Lot" (407) by J. G. Brown. The latter shows a number of 
bootblacks grouped about a negro boy, who is dancing for them. The 
expression of good humor in all the faces is admirably depicted, and much 
of the genuine character of these street waifs is shown. The large pict- 
ure, above, " Cannes" (409), is by W. S. Haseltine. A large picture by 
Mr. DeHaas, entitled "Saluting the Admiral's Yacht, Seventeenth Cen- 
tury " (410), shows a number of the quaint, excessively decorated vessels 
of the period, reproduced with rare accuracy. The sky and water 
are both full of motion, and the force of the wind is well indicated 
in the distended sails. The bright colors in the flags and gorgeous trap- 
pings of the vessels, reflected in the dancing water, combine to form a pict- 
ure striking in color effect. By T. W. Wood, is a picture showing a boy 
with a " Jack-o'-Lantem " (411) before him, which he has just made from 
a large squash. The light in the picture comes from an old perforated tin 
lantern beside him. The Sunset (415) of Mr. Inness comes next, and be- 
yond it is William Hart's Modern Cinderella (416). James M. Hart is well 
represented by his "At the Watering Trough " (420). Another picture by 
Walter Sanford, " From an Artistic Point of View " (422), represents an 
old priest showing a companion a print — which one may judge to be of a 
questionable moral character— to which he calls attention "merely on ac- 
count of its artistic merit." "At Ebb of fide" (424) is an effective sketch 
of a boat fast in the sand, by George Wharton Edwards, and A Pleasant 
Day in March (425) is a characteristic picture by II. Bolton Jones. 

•'The Window Seat" (426), by F. D. Millet, shows a young woman 
seated in the window, crochetting. The management of light is effective, 
and the view through the window is realistic. By G. II. Shelton is a 
"Moonlight, Winter" (427); by Arthur Parton, "A June Day in the 
Catskills" (430) ; and by William Page— one of the oldest living Acade- 
micians— " A Portrait of a Gentleman " (429). Walter Shirlaw's " Sorry 
for the Goose " (431), shows a small boy, with saddened expression, watch- 
ing his mother pluck the bird. Jan Chelminski's Central Park (436) is one 
of the last pictures on this wall. On the corner panel hang Frank 
Fowler's " Fatima " (439) and J. F. Murphy's " Yellow Leaf " (438), and 
here also is Wordsworth Thompson's Advance of the Enemy (44 2 )- 

On the West wall, in addition to Eastman Johnson's Portrait, of Senator 
Evarts (452), are J. B. Bristol's "Berkshire Hills" (449)— with fine effect 
of distance— Lyell Carr's Hard Times (451), C. II. Miller's Old Mill at 
Palchogue, L. I. (453), C. Y. Turner's "Emblem of Mortality" (457)— 
an old man contemplating a skull— and Edward Moran's "Waiting for 



THE SOUTH GALLERY— 1 885. 35 

Dad" (454). In the latter are three children standing on the shore— a 
girl standing with a child in her arms, and a boy sitting on a rock — look- 
ng out over the sea. The moon is rising above the water, and the glow 
of a crimson sunset falls on the backs of the children and slightly tinges 
the upper sky — almost the same effect as one sees in Hamilton Hamilton's 
picture at the other end of the room. — Very charming in its harmony. 
James D. Sinillie's forcible rendition of The Cliffs of Normandy (458) 
occupies, the line the whole of the corner panel. 

At the end of the North wall, by Mrs. Mary Richardson, isa figure study 
called " Peace " (465), showing an old woman, her spectacles removed, 
pondering over something she has just read from the Bible open in her lap. 
Over the door to the West Gallery is Miss Dodson's Fareivell to the Roses 
(466). Memories (468), by Irving R. Wiles, and A Modern Eve (469), by 
E. Wood Perry, hang beyond the doorway, and in the same panel are 
"Towing in" (470), by M. F. H. De Haas; a " Portrait of a Lady" (472)— in 
blue dress with lace collar and sleeves, by G. P. A. Healy, " Guerillas re- 
turning from a Valley Raid" (473), by Gilbert Gaul,— showing a number 
of unkempt men about a camp fire, on a high ledge of rock overlooking a 
vast expanse of country — with other men coming in ; Charles Sprague 
Pearce's "Toiler of the Sea," (474),— a fisherman's daughter with basket 
and nets over her shoulder ; Her First Letter (478), by W. V. Birney, and 
" Fin gal's Cave" (479), by Thomas Moran. 

On the panel beyond the door to the Corridor, are J. L. Fitch's "Willows 
on the Croton" (485), Henry A. Loop's Repose (486), George H. Smillie's 
Showery Day on the Massachusetts Coasi ? (489) ; C. B. Smith's "Bretons 
Bargaining" (488) ; On the Beach" (495),— a lady and a gentleman on 
horseback— by Chelminski ; " Afternoon" (496), by H. Bolton Jones, and 
" Young Gamblers" (490), by Frederick Dielman,— two street boys tossing 
pennies,— in artistic treatment suggesting some of the old pictures by 
Murillo. 

On the registers in the centre of the gallery are four busts,— one of them, 
No. 500, is a "Portrait bust of the late Dr. Damrosch," by A. Loeher. The 
numbers begin at the left of entrance from the East Gallery.
